As every parent knows, children are not adults in tiny bodies. Their development, needs, and care are different. This is especially true in medical care. Diseases (like cancer) may have similar names for adults and children, but the presentation, treatment, and prognosis can be very different. In a series of six webinars, Healwell teams up with experts in pediatric care to bring you in depth information on pediatric pathologies. If you want to be part of the team working with children in a clinical setting, this knowledge is essential. If you are curious, but unsure, these webinars will give you an informed introduction.

 

You can take one, two, or all six online courses.

Note: Completion of all six courses is required for acceptance into our Pediatric Massage in the Clinical Setting course.
